3 Resources for Decking Inspiration

3 Resources for Decking Inspiration

Written by Adam Coholan, an active blogger who writes about remodeling and exterior design based on his experience working with Queens rental properties for Elliman Real Estate. You can follow him on Twitter @Coho22.

As a homeowner, keeping up with the latest housing trends can help keep your home beautiful as well as maintain or improve the value of your property. One of the latest trends is having lavish outdoor living space. To be lavish doesn't mean dropping a lot of money, however; building a wooden deck on to your home is a wonderful, cost-effective solution to getting more square footage.
Adding interior space to your home requires more construction in terms of walls, insulation, roofing and wiring up utilities. But a wooden deck gets you more room for less money. Not only is the return almost dollar for dollar, but the maintenance is also minimal.
When you're ready to start planning your new project, turn to the great resources listed below to get inspiration. You can see what is modern in terms of the design of the structure of your deck and way to decorate it when it's done. Check out these sites to get your creative mind moving:

• Archadeck
Archadeck helps kickstart the design process by offering a design guide for planning your outdoor space. It’s incredibly useful because it forces you to determine exactly what your goals are for your new outdoor living area. It also includes questions that many designers may overlook, like what time you want the sun hitting the deck or what type of view you’re looking for. Once all of your goals are outlined, they suggest clipping pictures of specific looks you want to incorporate, and the next to resources are perfect for finding examples.

Filled with photos and articles about deck design from professionals, in terms of construction and decor, this is a great resource to use to make your deck the most beautiful outdoor space on the block! This site is similar to DIY's set-up but is more geared towards the overall picture; a great resource for when you're ready to put the final touches on your wooden deck.

• Better Homes and Gardens
